9780878404902: Decrees of the Ecumenical Councils 2 Volume Set

This monumental two-volume publication brings together in the original languages and an English translation, all the decrees of all the ecumenical councils from Nicaea I to Vatican II. As such it represents an indispensable reference work for theologians and historians, as well as for anyone interested in the development of Christian thought and doctrine. Indeed, these decrees represent the authoritative distillation of Christian tradition which itself is bound together with scripture "in a close and reciprocal relationship" so that the two "form a single sacred deposit of the word of God, entrusted to the church."

The original text is a reproduction of the brilliant edition by G. Alberigo and others of the decrees Conciliorum Oecumenicorum Decreta, which provides for the first time a reliable critical text for all the ecumenical councils. The English translation faces each page of the original text and is the first rendering into English of all these decrees taken together. The translators have used inclusive language throughout to emphasize the continuity of conciliar documents.

The 2,528 total pages of these two volumes include all the authenticated texts and their English renderings as well as a preface and introduction by the oringinal languages editor, a foreword by the English language editor, a bibliography for each decree, various commentaries and explanatory notes, and ten comprehensive indices.

Review:

"The publication of these two volumes is a significant event.... All who are interested in theology or church history should have it on their desk.... Overall, these two volumes are a remarkable achievement and a well-conceived contribution to alleviate the theological (and cultural) needs of our times."―America

"For theologians, canonists, and historians this publication is an event of major scholarly importance....The decrees presented here often do represent lofty moments in the history of the Church and in the development of its doctrinal tradition; and every scholar and student will be grateful for the great and difficult labor that went into the preparations of this work."―Theological Studies

"[This] two-volume set [is] beautifully realized and, for the theologian and intellectual historian, indispensable."―Commonweal
